    Future-Retro Hero Story

    Though strictly speaking not Outlaw Star, it is set in the Toward Stars universe and is essentially its predecessor. You can read some of it as a fan translation here. I haven't read much yet, but I'll be sure to discuss it in this thread when I've read through it all.

    Looks sweet.
    There's a good OS sentimentality feel in the art.

    RE: Future-Retro Hero Story

    I believe you mean 'Future Hero Next Generation'

    ...That does look interesting


    Update: Had a look through issue 1. At first, I'm thinking; "GENE!... Aww".
    Having a quick scan, it looks a lot like the Anime (OLS).

    Especially the females.

    I'm guessing that was meant to be sarcasm. It's sometimes hard to tell on a forum, one might say. Hmm, indeed, that may have been directly derived from Future-Retro Hero Story. It's interesting because Outlaw Star's quite a bit newer—FRHS is from '88! Older than I'd have thought, just like Takehiko I bet.

    I never knew about this. :/
    can someone say if that is good enough to be even seen?

    RE: Future-Retro Hero Story

    With the exception of the drama CD which makes no sense to me, I know very little about FRHS, but maybe I'll come across a decent scanlation sometime.

    RE: Future-Retro Hero Story

    I saw there was an anime of it, but I was very "doubty" about it :/
    I love Outlaw star series to much, to something that might kill the universe a bit

    RE: Future-Retro Hero Story

    Nope, no anime. Just manga. If my memory's working properly, it's pretty much what made Takehiko Ito successful, or at least, it led to his success. Maybe you're thinking of Angel Links, which is a spin-off (and not a very good one) of Outlaw Star. FRHS is set in the same universe, but otherwise to my knowledge doesn't have a thing in common with Outlaw Star and is ten years older.

    RE: Future-Retro Hero Story

    I got a hold of the FRHS art book off eBay.
    The wizards of Tenrei do make an appearance.
    But other than that the similarities appear purely speculative.

    RE: Future-Retro Hero Story

    The fact that so many of these Outlaw Star related works have never been officially translated is really frustrating. I'd snap this up in a minute if it were available. Along with the Outlaw Star manga itself.
